Poole - Canford Cliffs Beach

A popular haven for the locals, this fine sandy beach offers more peaceful surroundings than some of Poole's livelier tourist hot spots. The water is clean and safe for swimming which make it an ideal location to visit with children. The beach also has a safe marked swim zone and a lost children patrol. Lifeguards are on duty between May and September. If the weather's wet, why not also visit the nearby Compton Acre gardens billed as among the finest in Europe. Open all year round, it features a craft shop, café, brasserie, railway exhibition, deer sanctuary and parking is free.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
